If you guys are having issues with the item synchronizing and not letting you play online try this solution.
1. SAVE YOUR NEED FOR SPEED HEAT SAVED DATA TO EXTERNAL DRIVE OR FLASH DRIVE.
2. DELETE NEED FOR SPEED HEAT GAME APPLICATION.
3. REDOWNLOAD NEED FOR SPEED GAME APPLICATION AGAIN BUT DO NOT START GAME!!!!
4. TAKE THE COPIED SAVED GAME FILES FROM THE EXTERNAL OR FLASH DRIVE THEN OVERWRITE THE NEW SAVED GAME FILES ON PS4 SYSTEM.
5. START NEED FOR SPEED HEAT GAME APPLICATION.
Hopefully this will help you guys it worked for me and a few friends after just playing the game normally or doing money glitch.
